    replied to A small town with a dark secret...
    Cryptid ideas:
    Mermaids (human base, Aquatic Form Ability, various Vocal Embeds optional)
    Loch Ness Monster (time displaced plesiosaur?). For some fun, make it a good conversationalist.
    Bogle (small mischievous troublemakers with Cacophonic Embeds and a Ban/Glitch that prevents them from harming those who obey their parents).

    Rumors
    The Milkman delivers fresh milk every 4th day of the week... despite the dairy having gone under decades ago. The milk is always fresh (*always* even if left open for days it never spoils). The bottles always vanish before the next...

    Nothing yet, though it does help to know what the options are when developing other plot hooks.

    Any key actors, scenes, plots, rumors, or locations decided yet?...

    As usual when presented with multiple options, I ask: why not all of them? Either layered, in a Mystery Cult, or multiple "competing" organizations? If the Demon wants to maintain their control, why not own both the establishment and the opposition, the better to keep an eye on upstarts and using one to clean the other?

    Cryptoflora-wise, definitely have some Aether blocking type, and maybe a false positive emitter. The fun thing with distinctive Cryptoflora is that one the investigators figure out it's purpose, spotting it elsewhere bring all kinds of implications.

    No, you are right. I was confusing this with a different thread....

    By the might of Death Wolf, let this thread Hunt again...

    So, is anyone doing anything special this Wolfiday?

    Focused on Mortals. Fae-Touched might apply, but Changelings are no longer human (so don't count)....

  • Pretty solid. Add it?

    Should this project be finalized April 2nd, 2018, one year after the thread's start? (Anniversary?)

  • Near-Field Gadgets are discussed in Flowers of Hell. Basically they are one-off effects from Embeds and Exploits. Their powers aren't covered in the source Embed/Exploit, but they are conceptually close enough. (Such as a switch/key/whatever being unnoticeable when surrounded by similar objects - Lost In The Crowd, but changed to apply to objects instead of people)

    Interference is in the Mundane Embeds section, though it helps throw Angels off your scent after a failed Compromise Roll. Flowers of Hell has Context Matters, where mortals participants can actually help your Compromise...

  • Welcome!



    Well, there are ways to create "dead zones" that block the G-M's senses. I think there is a bar in Seattle that has a kind of cryptoflora that does so. Certain kinds of Suborned Infrastructure might as well, or Near-Field (or Lambda) Gadgets with Interference. The ST could also just rule that "no witnesses, no compromise", if there isn't any realistic risk. Boltholes are also safe spaces, I think.



    I think it is every time you are "spotted" doing something out of character, regardless of whether the observers...

    That would have to work a bit indirectly, though, right? You can only give away your side of "I'm the child of X", which would let the Demon's Cover become that parent's child, but to become an Offspring, you'd need the parent to sign away their "I'm the parent of Y" for the Demon to become Y's new parent. Right? I've always found it a bit confusing.

    So, it's like the permission slip version of a Faustian deal for power? "Please, mom/dad, I really need you to sell your claim on me away for Occult power."...

    Hmm. Need some time to review (and a PC for better typing).

    I had a few strictly Vampire-Hunter ideas, but I'll think a bit more on them to see if they fit.

    Nice. A good blend.

    I feel like Spirit should be able to let you shoot across the Gauntlet (treated the Gauntlet Penalty as a Defense bonus for the target). Not sure what to do with Death to bring that up to parity. Mind maybe should also do the same for Goetia. Just throwing ideas out, but what about letting them bypass non-X targets? Such as Mind arrows going straight through unthinking matter?

  • Bargain time might not map to real-time.

    As for whether they tell, that depends on a case-by-case basis. "Hi, everyone! I died, but struck a deal with some man-thing made of nails to come back." What could go wrong?...

    Depending on the scale, even non-archmaster Mages can with Space and few other Arcana. You might need groups if them working together to reach anything close to "world-like" though.

    I just read an article that said that Skyrim was only about 14 square miles (not sure if they included interiors and underground, though), for reference. It can certainly seem bigger than it really is with clever attention to terrain and details.
